We decided to have a lazy night in at our villa with takeaway pizza. Thanks to trip advisor we thought we'd try La Mona Lisa. We weren't disappointed. The best pizza ever and from my fussy husband and 2 teenage sons that's praise indeed. They looked after beautifully while we were waiting with drinks. We were so impressed I think we will be going again tomorrow and eating there.

The owners of this restaurant are clearly hostile towards any sort of modern conveniences. There is no wifi. They do not accept credit cards and there is no A/C.

Despite this hostile environment towards convenience, they do serve some good pizzas.

The staff also seemed a bit grumpy.

Hi there Tor :) thank you for your review - I would just like to clarify, that inside the restaurant we do infact have A/C which is on full time. However, because we also have our wood burning oven also being inside (which allows us to create our authentic pizzas) you may loose the full effect of the A/C. We appologise for that - hence why we have the outside terrace for guests to sit out under cover in summer. We also do have Wi-Fi (free) that if you would have asked one of us, we would have been more than pleased to give you the password for. As for the no card machine - this is something we have only had for a few months due to unforeseen circumstances, in which we are trying our utmost to fix. We understand it is an inconvenience to our customers and we apologize for that. We are glad you enjoyed the food. Happy holidays :) kind regards!

Lovely meal out with the family on the terrace. Pizzas and pastas were great and the service was fab too. A little drive out of Carvoeiro but worth it.

Mona Lisa is a low key Italian restaurant. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and well presented with a wide and varied menu with daily specials. While the pasta and fish dishes are really tasty, the pizzas are fab - freshly prepared by the chef. Well worth a visit. Every Wednesday the resident 'singer' is Bradley O' Connor who we found to be loud and tuneless so unless you're a fan...
